I have been using "thunderbird" on RH9 for sometimes and am quite
satisfied with it. Until recently it could not be started anymore.
Whenever I evoke it with "thunderbird" as USER a file 'XUL.mfasl' will
be automatically generated under
which will hinder starting "thunderbird".
I met this problem before "thunderbird could not start the second
time". If I remove the said file 'XUL.mfasl' then I can start
"thunderbird" once ONLY once. After closing "thunderbird" I have to
remove the said file first before I can start "thunderbird" the second
time. Now this trick can't work. I just leave "thunderbird" there
Now in my new Debian 3.0 box I resume thinking of "Ximian Evolution' 1.4
which I also have been using for a prolonged time. But its spam filter
is not strong compared with "thunderbird"
Have you ever encountered the problem of the file 'XUL.mfasl'. If YES,
kindly advise about your solution.
Thanks in advance.
